Twin City Track Club will attempt to cover 619  miles to celebrate Juneteenth (6.19.2020).   This challenge is open to anyone that wants to help accomplish this challenge! 

There is no cost to participate, but donations are welcomed.  Donations received from this event will go to the Winston-Salem Urban League.

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery 155 years ago in the United States. From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. 

This year, Juneteenth is an especially meaningful day, reminding us of the continued struggle in the African American community for equal opportunity and treatment. As runners, we seek to celebrate freedom and inclusiveness by running as one community to achieve a common goal.

Participation in the Juneteenth Challenge is FREE!  But you must register for your miles to count.  Sign up here and get in your miles on Friday, June 19, 2020.

You will enter your distance goal when you register.  6.19 miles is a good distance to consider, but you can cover any distance you choose and run any route you choose. We are suggesting that runners wear red, white, and blue to highlight the colors of the Juneteenth flag or red, black, and green, the colors of the Pan-African flag.

Membership in Twin City Track Club is not required to participate, but we encourage all runners to join if you are not a member. Membership info here.
